Every time you see the word "Law" think morality because every law has at it's base a moral component. Whether or not you agree with the moral component at the base of the law is immaterial to whether every law has a moral component.

That says nothing about whether the moral component is moral, amoral or immoral and it says nothing about whther or not the law is constitutional. It's simply a fact that all laws reflect the morality of the lawmaker.

Pol Pot had one set of laws based on his morality and Moses reflected a somewhat different view when he came down from the mountain.

Why argue tautologies?

You're arguing that the 'morality' of legislators that ignore basic human rights, - that prohibit machine guns, --- is comparable to legislators who honor their Constitutional obligations.
I find that type of reasoning repugnant, and immoral.

Comparing Pol Pot's 'moral' views to Moses -- is simply bizarre.
